Blue Day, 8x8" oil on RayMar panel
Tuesday, May 21, 2013
I was visiting the National Gallery in DC on a rainy day recently with friends. This gentleman was sitting just outside obviously waiting for his wife since he was holding her coat. So gloomy day all dressed in blue holding a blue coat! I told him he was picture perfect... after I'd taken the first couple of photos. I thought... blue... how hard can that be! Way more of a challenge than expected to make the blues have dimension. So I'm going to paint another similar one to play with the blues again.
